... everyones taste i know). Agave Montanna is excellent as well.May i suggest you have a look at some of Yorkshire Kris videos on you tube .Musa Basjoo needs protection if you want to preserve the psedostem ,otherwise it is root hardy and will regrow from the root

Thank, I've cut back all the way to the base now and no sign of any green. It’s been like this for a week now, is it ok to leave as it is or cut back further?

... Non palm, try T rex (mine is in the ground 7 years & is BIG) likewise gunnera if you can give it enough water. Try Miscanthus gigantus, musa basjoo, phormiums, Hardy yuccas are good too,

Hi Jonty. Don't worry. It will reshoot from the base. The winter before last I dug out a cherry tree that was planted next to one of my MBs. The hole was 3 foot deep and exposed the roots of the MB. Then the beast from the east hit and the hole (in heavy clay soil) filled with water and froze. As ex...

Thanks, I’ll cut the pseudo stem tomorrow as see if I can see any sign of life. It was really soggy so there is a risk that the roots have rotted.
If I don’t see anything , do i just cut all the way to the bottom and see if it regrows from the root?

Some good ideas here. You shouldn't have to wait long for something to develop. If the middle of the pseudostem doesn't do anything soon it should still pup from the base.

If you have two more in the wings I'd be inclined to take advantage of options and pot one and plant one.

Thanks, yes the bag over the top has prevented water coming in plus it was nice and warm.
I watched videos of overwintering and none of them put anything between the straw and ground, I'll use a plastic sheet next time!

musa bajoo are root hardy so will resprout from the root anyway. 1 would continue to cut the pseudostem a liitle at a time until you find(hopefully} a grren center core. This is where the new growth will come from.Assuming its not rotten all the way down/ Prevent the straw from drawing moisture up f...

I had 27 at the old house but couldn't dig them up so just left them thinking I could pick up a couple easily. No such chance..I'm really struggling ...
